Every construction site has its specific rhythms and sound.
This video assemblage uses a confluence of sound, space and time to depict the act of urban construction. We see towering cranes lifting and swinging blocks into position for yet another commercial addition to the urban sprawl typical of cities like London. This mundane sight is altered through mirrored editing, in which we see a contraction of time. The soundtrack for Cranes helps create the impression of the machines’ mechanical movements conducting the clouds. This spatial illusion transforms a mundane urban scene into an imaginative cityscape, offering fluidity of meanings.
